    To explore individual determinants of workplace injury among Thai workers. Design: Cross-sectional analysis of a large national cohort. Setting: Thailand. Participants: Thai Cohort Study participants who responded to the 2009 follow-up survey were included if they reported doing paid work or being self-employed (n=51 751). Outcome measures: Self-reported injury incidence over the past 12 months was calculated. Multivariate logistic regression models were used to test associations between individual determinants and self-reported workplace injury. Results: Workplace injuries were reported by 1317 study participants (2.5 ); the incidence was 34 (95 CI 32 to 36)/1000 worker-years for men, and 18 (17-20) for women.
